Shocker: Jesse Williams is Departing ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ This Month

So, it is over for Dr. Jackson Avery.

Per THR, Jesse Williams is departing Grey’s Anatomy this month, May 20, as his two-year contract with the franchise comes to an end.

Reacting to this in a statement, Williams said, “I will forever be grateful for the boundless opportunities provided me by Shonda [Rhimes], the network, studio, fellow cast mates, our incredible crew, Krista [Vernoff], Ellen [Pompeo] and Debbie [Allen]. As an actor, director and person, I have been obscenely lucky to learn so much from so many and I thank our beautiful fans, who breathe so much energy and appreciation into our shared worlds. The experience and endurance born of creating nearly 300 hours of leading global television is a gift I’ll carry always. I am immensely proud of our work, our impact and to be moving forward with so many tools, opportunities, allies and dear friends.”

Added showrunner Vernoff: “Jesse Williams is an extraordinary artist and activist. Watching his evolution these past 11 years both on screen and off has been a true gift. Jesse brings so much heart, such depth of care, and so much intelligence to his work. We will miss Jesse terribly and we will miss Jackson Avery — played to perfection for so many years.”

This news comes after it was reported that Williams’ former on-screen love interest, April (Sarah Drew) returned for an episode that will point Jackson toward a fulfilling closure for the character.
